For the period of the temporary closure (3 to 30 November 2020 inclusive), the Vienna State Opera will offer video recordings from the digital archive as a stream free of charge.

The online program is largely based on the regular schedule. Two very current productions can already be seen this week: Dmitri Tcherniakov's Eugene Onegin, recorded last Saturday, and Cavalleria rusticana / Pagliacci , a recording of today's performance with Roberto Alagna in the role of Canio.

The streams are available free of charge in Austria and internationally on the play.wiener-staatsoper.at website. The start is always at 7 p.m., the broadcasts are available for 24 hours.
